Fine Jade: Woods Bags Rocky Mountain Super-Project

By Climbing Staff ,

Daniel Woods bagged the first ascent of a much-coveted Rocky Mountain National park super-project, Jade (V15, and formerly known as the Green 45). The problem features a stopper V13 crux surf to a left gaston, a move tried by the best and failed on by most. V11 climbing finishes out the wicked-steep wall. Stay tuned to Climbing No. 259, out August 1, for more

Date of Ascent: On June 19
